My research interest lies in the area of management accounting. Most of my work has been interdisciplinary and qualitative in nature. I have explored case studies related to various multinational companies including ABB, Schneider Electric, Network Rail and Rolls-Royce. I am interested in working on the following management accounting research themes:

  • The performative role of management accounting practices
  • The interplay between management accounting/control system and innovation
  • Lean operations and their relation to management control system’s development
  • Costing and performance measurement in less developed and emerging economies
  • Deployment of new management accounting practices in new product and process innovations


  • PhD scholarship from Loughborough University
  • Supplemental research scholarship from MEK Foundation for Sustainable development in Cairo, Egypt
